I feel like I'm becoming that friend who you come over and tell all your boy adventures to." Um, Dawson? Like, SHUT UP! No such luck; Dawson announces, "I want to be your boy adventure." They both look over at a couple toasting each other on a schooner. Jen asks impatiently, "Can't you be both?" Dawson says no, he can't, "not at fifteen," because "it's too complicated." "Okay," Jen says, "So I'm interested." "In what?" Dawson asks. "In an adventure," Jen smolders. Next to me on the couch, Mr. Stupidhead politely inquires whether I have a fork he can borrow. Jen asks, "What do I have to do?" Dawson suggests, "You could kiss me." Jen responds, "I'd rather eat glass." Oh, wait, that was my response -- sorry. Jen actually snorts, smirks, smiles, then turns her back on Dawson and leans on the railing, and as Dawson closes his eyes at the sting of rejection, Jen describes herself as "a cliché," saying, "In New York, I was moving fast, I was moving really really fast, so fast I kept stumbling and falling," and she says that since coming to Capeside, for the first time in a long time, she is "walking at a steady pace," and she's afraid that if she kisses Dawson, her knees will buckle blah blah blah stumble again blah blah blah "don't know if can handle it now" blah blah blah fishcakes. Dawson clearly doesn't view this as an acceptable excuse, and he looks over at the couple on the schooner again, who have now gotten up to dance together, and Jen looks too, and then she invites Dawson to dance. "Here? Right now?" asks Rico Leery. Jen says she's wanted to dance with him all night. They dance, and Jen explains that "the kiss is just the end result, it's not what's important. It's all about desire and wanting." "And romance," Dawson adds, as Jen strokes his cheek with one cloven hoof and assents, "And romance." Jen rests her head on Dawson's shoulder. Joey appears from behind a tree and watches them with a look of heartbroken longing on her face, and the camera zooms in on her hunching her shoulders miserably, and Dawson and Jen dance some more, and Julia Roberts strolls over from the set of Pretty Woman and asks Jen if she can have her outfit back.
